Because they apperently don't exist by PieLady4 Because they apperently don't exist by PieLady4
Apparently, you cannot be gay and be a christian or a conservative. If you are not liberal, atheist, and/or flamboyant, you are not the "right kind"of gay and are not considered part of LBGT. This is just based on the hate mail I've seen on Ethan Sabo's tumblr. He is a gay republican and half the hate mail he gets is from liberals who actually accuse him of just pretending to be gay. It sickens me, gays are just like any other people, they can have different religions and political beliefs, they are not all the same.

well . . . i'm not an atheist & i'm not flamboyant

i'm alright with gay republicans . . . i'm just not alright with the ones that support candidates that will tread on people's rights
it would be like black people going, "Oh yeah.  They segregate against us, but at least they're in our political party"

I am certainly not saying you have to be atheist or flamboyant, this is what I have heard other people say. It's very wrong to say people need to believe a certain thing or act a certain way to be "acceptable."

I understand where you are coming from, but that example you used could apply to a lot of lgbt people who think they need to join the democrat party even if they are against gun control and abortion but say "Well, at least they're for gay marriage!"

The point is you don't have to agree with every aspect of the party/political ideology you support. Also the president doesn't really have a say in social issues like gay marriage. I know gay people-the one I am representing in this comic in particular- who don't want the federal government to interfere with the idea of marriage and prefer the states handle it.

I appreciate you being polite in spite of disagreeing however! Your comment is really appreciated because expressing your opinion with outright rudeness isn't right. So thank you!

why thank you ^^

i know how difficult this debate is & it's usually the hardcore liberals that tend to be all "you need to be _______, or you're blah blah blah" & i never really got that

unfortunately, both the liberal and conservative sides produce the extremist people that tend to be more insulting towards those that don't vote for their side and tend to tread on the rights of others

honestly, i'm somewhere in the middle.  i agree with both sides
i'm pro choice, anti gun control, pro health care, and pro strong national defense
but the side that will always win me over . . . is the side that goes for less bigotry =u=

I'm not sure what you mean by "the side that goes for less bigotry" but I do agree that there are extremists on both sides. And it's never good : (

yeah, that was generally one of the parts that i probably should have defined better

the best way i can explain it, is that there are two definitions of freedom.  the north has one and so does the south.  the north's freedom, the one generally used by liberals, is freedom to be urself & not get persecuted.  the south's freedom, the one generally used by conservatives, is freedom for them to discriminate against whoever they want

i know it isn't always the case, but it shows up too often =_=

umm...No not at all. The whole point of Conservatism is wanting the government out of your life. Conservatives believe that the government has no right to tell you how to live your life. Conservatives do believe in some regulation however, their stance on the legalization of pot for example, because they are not libertarians who are even further right.

Liberals believe in the government mandating things. It is done in the name of freedom, and some liberals have very good intentions because they believe if their are more laws regulating what you can and can't do it will "protect" people. There are deviations here too, such their stance on abortion.

It's not about discrimination. The ideologies just have different ideas on government regulation and what should be regulated vs what should not.

yeah, my view might be slightly biased, then again i live in the south so those are generally what they fall into when we have conservatives & liberals down here XP

I kinda agree with conservatives at parts.  the gvt does not have the right to tell you how to live, as long as you aren't harming others

then the liberals have me when it comes to some gvt regulation, as long as it doesn't tread on basic freedoms

one thing i actually think i sort of came up with in trying to bridge the gap was for the gun-control debate.  I don't want the gvt telling people they can't have guns because a good number of actual gun owners are responsible enough to care for them properly.  My stance was just toward the regulation of concealable guns, or at the most non-rifles.  then everyone can have their freedom to bear arms and they wouldn't be able to just hide them on their person and would more likely have their gun taken from them if they were to try & take it into a place where guns are prohibited

ahh I understand.

Personally I don't like any gun control because there is already a lot of regulation on guns, I am all for concealed carry because I feel like I have that right to carry a gun for my own defense. I understand if you would just want open carry however, either way I get to defend myself!
